LeDomduVin: Château Lafite-Rothschild 1961 close-up
Although I left my position as Wine Quality Control Director, nearly a year ago, after doing it for 9 years in my previous job, I still love doing wine inspections and checking out these old and rare ladies in every detail.
A few days ago, I had the opportunity to do a brief inspection of a few bottles that were bought by the wine team of one of our outlets, which included some old and rare gems, like this Lafite 1961.
Always a pleasure to scrutinize these ladies everywhere and even gently lift up their capsules to look at what's underneath. 😀 😄 (we're still talking about a bottle of wine, right? 😉)
This particular bottle showed a great level, good colour and sedimentation. The capsule and label were in good condition and show no counterfeiting signs, even under the microscope and the blue light.
The capsule had been previously cut, so I couldn't resist opening it and having a closer look at the cork, which was also in very good condition.
That's a "Passed" to me! How about you?
